The CD purge continues

Jerry passed the torch. Here’s the stuff.

Music Questionnaire:

1. What is the total amount of music files on your computer?

41.7 GB at the moment. This is not only everything I’ve checked out from Amoeba since I started in June, but it’s also the accumulated tunage I’ve ripped from the CD’s I’m hoping to get rid of. According to the software I got with my Rio Carbon, that includes music from more than five hundred albums and 5800 tracks. I rip CD’s at 224kps using CDEX.

Oh, and if I count iTunes, we can add another 4G. I’ve had to re-acquire some of the cool music I’ve purchased through iTunes because I can’t bear the high compression artifacts in their “m4p” format.

2. The CD you last bought is:

I’ve purchased a cd single of Fine Day by Kristy Kawkshaw (RealAudio |

) through ebay, just so I could get my hands on that James Holden remix. (Remember him?)

3. What is the song you last listened to before reading this message?

Freddie’s Dead by Curtis Mayfield, from the deluxe Anniversary edition of the Superfly soundtrack.

4. Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you:

Off the top of my head…

Silverfuck by The Smashing Pumpkins. An epic scorcher.

Neverland by Marillion. It’s a perfect close to their fine new album.

Starship Trooper by Yes. I’ve been on yet another Yes kick lately and have been systematically digging through my various DVD’s in search of live versions. My favorite live track by any band ever.

Napoleon by Ani DiFranco, because we recently had a conversation about her in the break room at Amoeba and I declared it to be my favorite DiFranco tune.

Trouble Sleeping by The Perishers, because I’ve got to get my enjoyment out of them now before they get as popular as Snow Patrol.

5. Who are you going to pass this stick to? (3 persons) and why?

Probably no one, but if I do, I’ll let y’all know.
